MORE TULE FOG – October 24, 2017

I’d like to start today by saying; If you are reading this on Facebook please click on the link associated with the picture, that way you get to see all of them. Thanks and enjoy.

This mornings walk was crystal clear until I got to Ebey Prairie where the tule fog had rolled in. I really like taking photos with tule fog, it really adds a cool effect. I think you’ll agree.

First a pumpkin patch with tule fog in the background. I have to say that those are some tiny pumpkins!

This photo is also looking east with the Sherman Farm buried in the fog and the Cascade Mountains in the background.

I need a little help with the next photo. It’s a beautiful field of ???????  It looks like it might be cabbage but the leaves look fuzzy like Dusty Miller, I’m just not sure but it made for a pretty picture.

Leafy Vegetable Crop

And finally, I found the “Tin Family” dressed in their Halloween costumes. I wonder what kind of threats they like?

And that completes today’s four and a half mile walk. Thanks for joining me and I’ll try to see you again tomorrow!

PATCHY FOG – October 9, 2017

This morning I saw something on my walk that disturbed me but I not really sure of the emotion. I showed you this “witch” on one of my walks last week.

Apparently someone needed the wheelchair more than Dorthy did because this morning it was gone. The mixed emotion comes from the total disregard for the display but perhaps a person who really needed a wheelchair.

Dorthy on Ground

Through the fog I spotted the Sherman Pioneer Farm pumpkin truck advertising their pumpkins for sale. It is parked along side of the highway. You can see the Olympic Mountains in the background.

This little patch of tule fog caught my eye because of the layers and the gap in-between, very odd.

With that we start a new week. I hope you have a really good one and thanks for walking with me.

FIZZLED SUNRISE – September 13, 2017

This morning I headed out the door early because I could see that there was a spectacular sunrise about to happen. There were lots of interesting clouds and with the forest fires in Eastern Washington it should be fantastic.

I walked really fast out to the Ebey Prairie to be in position for it to happen. Along the way I spotted this bank of tule fog behind this beautiful farm. The trees kind of look like they are on an island.

An then it started to happen! I caught it at it’s peak which kind of fizzled. I did manage to get a nice photo but not what I was expecting.

Cloudy Sunrise

On my way back home I got one last peek at the waning sunrise. I spotted these clouds with the highlighted edges that only lasted for about thirty seconds. I think it’s at least interesting.

Pink Edged Clouds

And that’s all I got for a three mile walk. Thanks for joining me and hopefully we’ll do it again tomorrow!

FOGGY BARNS – February 24, 2015

This morning’s walk took me on a loop out to the Ebey Prairie and back through Coupeville. It was another beautiful morning but there was some tule fog on the prairie that made for a couple of nice photos.

This first one is of the Sherman’s Pioneer Farm barns with a layer of tule fog down low, or is that “On the down low?” 😉

Not far from there I captured this farmhouse with the Olympic Mountains standing tall.

Back in Coupeville I thought I’d share a photo of “town”. The historic center of Coupeville is Front Street which is about two blocks long. This photo is looking up Front Street to the sunrise in the east.

And that wrapped up our walk for today. I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring as sprinkles are coming back into the forecast. If I do get out for a walk please come join me, I always enjoy your company 🙂

LABOR DAY 2014

Happy Labor Day everyone, I hope you are enjoying a nice holiday, I sure am.

I walked a little further this morning and it yielded some more nice photos, I hope you enjoy them.

The first thing I spotted was this “Practice Fence”. The person that lives here is a wood turner and while he was learning he turned many bowls. He hung his early efforts on the fence and I really like the way they look.

While I often walk Main Street it never dawned on my as to how pretty the old building are lining the street all in a row. This the the Methodist Church and the two Blue Goose Inn buildings.

The tule fog is starting to come onto the prairie and it always makes for some nice photos. It looks like the hay is all loaded in the barn for the winter ahead.

I finally got our resident “White Deer” to pose for a photo. His horns are really starting to grow.

I love this old Dodge truck that is often parked in front of the museum advertising Local Grown, a wonderful little coffee and pastry shop out on the end of the Coupeville Wharf. Not only do they have coffee and pastry but many items from local growers and artisans. If you’re ever out there say hi to William, the owner.

Have a great holiday and short week ahead!
